Remnants of AMANDA

Remnants Of Amanda Discussion Number   5
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP022020
400 PM CDT Sun May 31 2020
Amanda has weakened quite quickly over the mountainous terrain of
Guatemala this afternoon.  Although a mid-level circulation is
still evident in visible satellite imagery, recent surface
observations suggest that the low-level circulation has dissipated
over Guatemala. Therefore, this will be the final NHC advisory on
this system.  The remnants of Amanda are forecast to turn
northwestward later tonight, and could emerge over the southern Bay
of Campeche late Monday or Tuesday where new tropical cyclone
development is possible.  Please refer to NHC's Atlantic basin
Tropical Weather Outlooks for more details on possible tropical
cyclone development in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.
There have been reports of torrential rainfall from Amanda over 
portions of El Salvador and Guatemala during the past 12-24 hours. 
Although the system is no longer a tropical cyclone, the larger 
cyclonic gyre located over southeastern Mexico is likely to continue 
producing heavy rainfall over portions of Central America and 
southern Mexico during the next several days. These rains are likely 
to cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides. For additional 
information, see products issued by your national meteorological 
service and NHC Atlantic basin Tropical Weather Outlooks.
